CAUTION!<---Make sure MSFT doesn't GIVE you TWO KEYS!=MSFT=wasteful

I just realized that once you get a key and click on DOWNLOAD, MSFT gives you yet ANOTHER KEY and of course it will work (all the keys work, 32 works for 64, 64 works for 32, et-cetera), this means MSFT is being wasteful and we will ALL be getting 2 keys.

Make sure when you click on DOWNLOAD, after getting your key, you save the 2nd KEY info so you can forward it to someone else. Not fair if we all end up with the keys prematurely due to Microsoft mismanagement of cookies, scripts.

Thanks

Not sure. All I know is that last night, many of us, myself included, were having trouble getting a key - so someone emailed me one. If the limit really is 2.5 million, then it's only a matter of time before someone gets stuck.

Someone helped me (hot mail name of Steve Martin, who was that so I can properly thank you), so am trying to do the same.

They have since taken the 2.5 million limitation away. It is unlimited for the next two weeks.


Here’s where we stand

Yup - it is an unlimited Beta - and if there are all of a sudden a bunch of shared keys around, who's to say M$ *won't* punish those sharing keys and reward those that do not?

Log into your WL ID and then visit the link in the News forum post and get your own key.
